"Grand Old Lady of the Prairie"

Florence Cook Roefer (1913-2000) was an early leader in preserving these rock carvings and the surrounding prairie. As the first site manager of Jeffers Petroglyphs, Florence nurtured 33 acres of unplowed native prairie and supervised one of Minnesota's first prairie restorations on the site's 47 tilled acres. Florence had a great love of native prairie. She was recognized for her unique contribution to the preservation of Minnesota's cultural and natural heritage as the "Grand Old Lady of the Prairie" by Governor Jesse Ventura in 2000.

Buffalo Rub

This mowed and rolling trail of native and restored prairie stretches 3/4 of a mile back to the visitor center. Along this path you will find plants, insects and animals representing many different habitats. Near the end of this trail is a rock polished to a mirror finish by back-scratching buffalo.
